Justin Verlander got smoked by the Indians on Tuesday as he allowed five runs on 11 hits and three walks with just two strikeouts over six innings in the loss.

The wheels are coming off rapidly for JV who has allowed five earned runs and has walked as many batters (6) as he has struck out over his last two starts. Verlander's struggles have been hidden some prior to this because he was getting enough run support to help him wheel off six wins to one loss through his first seven starts of the season despite owning close to career worst walk and strikeout rates. Luckily, Verlander's next start on Sunday is a favorable one at home versus a banged up Rangers team.
